Good dental hygiene habits are developed at a young age. This makes it so important to teach your child early on the importance of brushing and flossing. Your child’s oral health is also a huge part of their overall health and well being. The best way to approach dental care with your child is by making it fun.

Toddlers and preschoolers think it is great fun to choose their own toothbrush and toothpaste! One way to get them excited is to take your child to a drugstore and allow them to choose a toothbrush featuring a favorite cartoon character or a favorite color. Just make sure that the brush is American Dental Association approved. There are many fluoride toothpastes made especially for kids that your child can choose too.

For older children (starting at around four or five), try introducing flossing as a fun alternative to . Regular floss can be a challenge for children, so try starting out with a dental flosser. These come in a variety of colors, so they are not only easier for children but also fun!

Children should begin visiting the dentist every six months when they are around one year old. Contact The Dental Center today to make an appointment and get your child started on a lifetime of good oral health!

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

One life is lost every hour of every day of every year to oral and oropharyngeal cancer (cancer of the mouth and throat).  This disease used to predominately affect people over the ago of 50 who were heavy drinkers and smokers. More recently, these diseases are detected more frequently in younger people who neither smoke nor drink.

Early detection is key with cancers of the mouth and throat, through oral cancer examinations. A regular exam, performed by your dentist regularly, can catch signs of oral cancer before it’s too late.  Catching and treating cancer early can ultimately lead to a complete recovery. In addition to regular exams, part of early detection includes contacting your dentist if you have any of the following symptoms that persist for longer than 2 weeks:

  • A lingering sore or irritation
  • Pain, tenderness, or numbness in the mouth or lips
  • Difficulty speaking, chewing, or swallowing
  • Difficulty moving your jaw
  • Red or white patches in your mouth
  • A change in your bite when your mouth is closed

April is the perfect time to take action in preventing oral cancer. Contact the dentists at The Dental Center today to schedule an appointment for an oral cancer examination. Remember – early detection can save your life!
